Bald Eagles are not REALLY Bald!

Mom and Daddy Len went to the Fort Worth Zoo this past Sunday. Mom likes to look at the animals, but was sad that they had to be locked up, and not in their natural environment.

They went to help me with pictures for my blog, of course. I was SUPER excited when they came home and showed me pictures of my new animal friends! (You can see from my blog, that I get SUPER excited a lot!) I will be posting these pictures mixed in with my other animal friends, so stay tuned!

The first one I want to show you is a bald eagle. The bald eagle is the national bird of the United States of America. This bird used to be on the endangered species list, and there were not many birds left in the world. They have now grown in population and are no longer endangered. I am glad because I think the bald eagle is very distinguished and beautiful.

The only thing I don't understand is why they are called "bald"? I think my Daddy Len is more bald than the bald eagle!!!

My friend, Anna, wrote a nice story about bald eagles recently with an awesome photo, so please visit Anna too!

The eagle is very majestic-looking. He does not look bald to me, either.

What a gorgeous birdie! I love all his feathers. He looks llike he'd be fun to play with.

Your mom and daddy are nice to go out and take pictures for you. Maybe I should have a talk with my mommy.
